Sunday 8 September
Still waiting for spares! Now been in Sant Antioco for over a week, getting very bored. It some ways it is like a prison. Security is very tight here. There is an electric gate which has to be opened by a member of staff, even at night. We therefore have to ask for them to open it when we go shopping, out for a meal or even just a walk! Always obliging, but it is a bit like being caged.
Decided to head for
Ended up beside the Hotel we used last time. Well, my wife has certainly honed her negotiating skills since we last tried to do so. Maybe Caris is having an influence! She persuaded Julio, the receptionist, that we were entitled to a 33% discount as returning customers, and promptly took a room! Back up the hill to collect our bags, and then in a wonderfully clean, air conditioned, King size bedded room with sea views etc…. Took time to use Tripadvisor to give the first place as rotten a feedback as possible, and enjoyed ourselves. Had a lovely meal in town, and slept like logs. Amazing breakfast, and then back to the boat by train and bus.
Hopefully they will carry out the repairs tomorrow,
Monday. It should not take more than a
day if everything is here, and there is a weather window at the end of the week
